Notes / Commercial Description:
Treat yourself to a rare delight. The voluminous raspberry bouquet will greet you long before your lips touch your glass. Serve this Wisconsin framboise very cold in a champagne flute. Then hold your glass to a light and enjoy the jewel-like sparkle of a very special ale.
Oregon proudly shares their harvest of mouth watering berries, which we ferment spontaneously in large oak vats. Then we employ Wisconsin farmed wheat and year old Hallertau hops to round out this extravaganza of flavor.

Originally had this at a tasting and it was my favorite beer of the day then had it on tap.

Appearance: Pours a red/pink color with a film of a white head. Just looks like a fruit beer.

Smell: Smells of straight up sweet raspberries and minimal tartness. So inviting.

Taste - Amazing raspberry flavor. A little tart. Not too sweet. Not too syrupy. Just perfect.

Mouthfeel: Nice mouthfeel.

Overall: One of the best fruit beers I've ever had. Just right. If I traded, this, Serendipity and Wisconsin Belgian Red would be on my permanent ISO list. I could drink this every day.

The beer comes in a dark mahogany red with a bit of brown with a good amount of head and lots of fizziness coming up.

The aroma is just juicy fresh raspberries. It's so sweet, but the highlight is the amount of tartness in there. There's also that fermented fruit and oak in there.

The flavor follows with just pure raspberries. It really just tastes like actual raspberries without that medicine or candy taste, even with a beer like Founders Rubeaus. It's just a perfect amount of raspberry sweetness and then it hits you with tons of tartness. Almost to the point of a lambic, but not quite. Then the finish gets you with a bit of oak, more tart drying, and champagne like carbonation.

This really is the best fruit beer I've had. The essence of raspberry is totally encapsulated in this beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours about one finger of white to off-white head. Body is brown with a red tinge and clear. No lacing.

S - Raspberries and sweet. Not much else going on.

T - Overpoweringly sweet. Raspberries. Very slight sourness. Some earthy funk to it as well on the back-end.

M - Good carbonation with medium body.

O - It is a dessert beer that is very sweet and one dimensional (raspberry). Not something I think I would ever seek out again.

EDIT - Tried this one again. Super pleasant beer that tastes great and is very smooth and refreshing. I would increase the appearance, taste, and overall by .25-.5 points each. I would give it a 3.9 rating today.
